Published the annual report of the International Energy Agency (IEA), which provides data on the prospects for renewable energy for the next five years.
Starting in 2015, the world has laid down the production of most of its electricity from commissioned clean energy power plants, hydropower plants and nuclear power plants) than from those using fossil fuels – gas, fuel oil and coal.
Positive forecasts for the coming years are based on programs of state support for the construction of clean energy power plants in many countries. However, despite the increase in the share of electricity from “clean” energy by 2023 to 30%, coal-fired power plants are still the largest supplier of “dirty” energy in the world.
According to forecasts, HPPs will produce 12% of the world's electricity in the next five years, which is the highest figure among renewable sources of energy. The share of wind power will increase to 7%, solar – will increase by 3 times. It will outstrip bioenergy and become the third largest source of renewable electricity.
According to the IEA, China will be the undisputed leader in the production of renewable electricity. By producing 438 gigawatts, it will increase its share in the global “piggy bank” of clean energy to 41%. Brazil is among the leaders. Almost half of all energy generated in this country will come from renewable sources.
One of the sections of the report is devoted to the growing role of bioenergy. It argues that only it reduces greenhouse gas emissions throughout the life cycle, avoiding social, environmental and economic impacts, so its role in the future of global energy will continue to increase.js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/ru_RU/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.8”; 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));
